from my pillow

The stars aligned and both girls are asleep.
I have a bunch of laundry to fold/put away,
and the floor could definitely be swept and mopped.

But I think I'm going to stay right here,
in my bed listening to acorns fall on my roof
and watch the leaves out my window.
[view from my pillow]
I mean, October only comes around once year, right?
Soon all the leaves will be gone,
and how sad would it be to have missed it all
for some stupid laundry and a clean floor?
